Cornell Dubilier (CDE), a manufacturer of capacitors for Power Electronics, releases its newly designed website. CDE offers a broad range of capacitor dielectrics, ratings, and values, all searchable using a powerful Advanced Parametric Search program and logical navigation paths.
“Our primary user is the design engineer and our site was developed with that in mind”, says Scott Franco, director of market development. “Our main objective was to create a clear path to finding the right capacitor for the application and to offer a means of obtaining parts to facilitate design-in. The most significant change to our site is the addition of an Advanced Parametric Search with a powerful search program that allows users to query our database of more than 40,000 capacitors using multiple search criteria. Once a component is selected, the user can locate distributor stock with direct links to the distributor’s shopping cart for that item. For more complex design considerations, the company offers a Technical Center with technical application notes, spice models, plus Life and Temperature Calculators for many of its core product types. “
Finding a cross to competitive parts is made simple with a competitive cross reference program that contains tens of thousands of exact crosses and possible substitutes. “This feature has been extremely valuable to customers who are looking to obtain comparable parts when competitive lead times start moving out”, says Franco.
